ASP.NET - The vNext Generation - Kevin Griffin (MVP)

For the past 15 years, ASP.NET applications have worked pretty much the same way. In order to deploy a new application, you need to have IIS up and running with corresponding .NET dependencies installed.

Recently at TechEd 2014, the ASP.NET announced the next generation of ASP.NET applications that remove the dependency on IIS. We're talking self-hosted ASP.NET projects! We're talking ASP.NET projects that run off a thumb drive. We're talking ASP.NET projects that run on Mac and Linux. In this talk, we'll take a look at some of the latest bits to come out of Redmond and how your development experience is going to change over the next several years.

Bio:
Kevin Griffin has been working as a professional developer since 2006, where his first job was working on components for the Symantec security suites. Kevin is the owner of Griffin Consulting, Inc, CTO of Winsitter, and always looking for new challenges. As an Microsoft ASP.NET MVP and ASPInsider, Kevin spends a lot of time teaching and mentoring developers to learn new technologies and to be better developers. Over four years ago, Kevin started the Hampton Roads .NET Users Group. He serves as the Director of Membership for INETA. You can find Kevin speaking at conferences, code camps, and user groups across the country.

    My brain hurts. Kevin thanks for another great talk.

    Kevin does a great job; good to know that Visual Studio will continue to have the best dev env features, no matter who thought of it first!

    The future will be run from the command line -- if you want it to be. Things are changing....

    As an ASP.NET developer, I've always found that server-side code works best for me where there is heavy database integration, as opposed to "frills" on the client-side, i.e. hard-core business apps vs. consumer entertainment. (but I'm not biased, right?)

    But I also need to address interactivity on mobile devices. Not Mac or Unix as mentioned, but Win RT and Win 8.x phones. So my question, ahead of the presentation, would be "does self-hosting" imply that there would be the potential for a self-hosted ASP app running on a tablet directly, as opposed to just a conventional web-site?

      Thanks, a good "maybe" is close enough for now. Basically I have an aversion to case-sensitive languages and prefer to stick with VB rather than Javascript (which of course is VERY different than JavaScript, if you catch my drift)

      @Brian: running while on-screen is plenty good enough for me at this time. Let me generalize from my original query, and that would be "....looking for some way to leverage VB.NET on a non-PC device, whether WP 8, RT, Android, etc.." This is in contrast with my current ability to run IIS Express / SQL Server Express on something as minimal as a two-pound laptop, with Kevin's indication that one could dispense even with IIS Express, i.e. some other runtime or self-hosting solution to be revealed tonight.
